Good for an overnight stay between flights but has little to offer beyond that. Staff not friendly, lunch/dinner menu quite basic and nothing substantial, long wait to check in and out, bar sterile in atmosphere. But convenient between flights.

Thank you for staying with us. We’re glad that you liked our hotel’s convenience. We’re sorry to hear about our staff not being friendly and your wait to check-in and check-out.

We flew into Johannesburg & spent one night at City Lodge before flying on to Cape Town. City Lodge was really nice,clean & easy to find & included a wonderful breakfast. The staff were wonderful & anxious to please.

Although we only spent around 12 hours in this hotel it suited us perfectly. Easy walking distance from international arrivals and departures - making it really convenient to check-in for an early morning onward flight. Check-in and check-out at the hotel was prompt and cheerful. Room and bathroom clean and spacious - we were able to book a smoking room....

This hotel is conveniently located next to the airport. The breakfast buffet was really good and way more than I expected for such a large hotel that deals mainly in large groups and one night stay overs. The room was average but functional. The hotel was fully booked whilst I was there and is clearly the preferred and most cost...

Room was clean but bathroom shower had lots of mould. After a shower which would run hot and cold rapidly cycling, the mouldy smell spread through the room. Dinner was eaten at their main floor restaurant and was passable. Overall I won't be in a rush to stay here again. But the location is good for early morning flights

This is a decent functional hotel with the amenities one would want during a stopover. The restaurant / breakfast were better than we expected. But they will only store bags for 24 hours. We would stay here again.

The City Lodge is a reliable brand; rooms are much the same, and you can expect to get exactly what you planned for. This property is somewhat larger, and hence busier and noisier than others. On the plus side, it is inexpensive for the location and getting there and back from the terminal building is the best feature of all.

Stayed here for a couple days on work and have to say the WiFi was great and lightning quick, staff friendly and food decent, misses out on getting a full 5 stars cause of the noise I'd hear, I get it is next to the airport but just a little sound proofing would go a long way
